Johannesburg - Corruption Watch is demanding answers about the role of President Jacob Zuma's lawyer Michael Hulley in a R10bn tender to distribute social grants, The Sunday Independent reported.

In submissions to the Constitutional Court, which heard the matter this week, Corruption Watch reportedly said it wanted to know "who did pay Mr Hulley?".

Corruption Watch sought intervention as a friend of the court in the case brought by Absa subsidiary AllPay against the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) and the winning bidder of the tender, Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).

AllPay reportedly lost the multibillion-rand contract to CPS, but sought leave to appeal the Supreme Court of Appeal's March judgment, which among other things admitted there were "inconsequential irregularities" but said these would not have changed the outcome of the tender.

According to The Sunday Independent, Corruption Watch said Hulley was appointed by Sassa as a strategic adviser for the tender process on an ad hoc basis and for R21 000 a day.

Sassa strategy and business development executive manager Raphaahle Ramokgopa reportedly admitted that Hulley had not sent invoices to Sassa and was not paid by the agency.

Throughout the court case there had been claims that Hulley was paid by CPS, but Sassa and the company have denied this, according to the newspaper.
